SHILLONG, August 03: The Home Minister of Meghalaya, Lahkmen Rymbui has denied the allegation of the BJP that party workers have been harassed by the West Garo Hills District Police. He said the officers do not have any right to harass the innocent citizens because if there is anything, they have to present proofs and evidences in court.
After the raid in the farmhouse of the MDC of Tura, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Meghalaya alleged that the police were harassing the BJP workers and members which is part of a political vendetta, and in Monday the party held a peaceful protest and also met with the Governor of Meghalaya on the basis of the allegation that party workers were being harassed by the Police force and District Administration in Tura, West Garo Hills District, wherein from the side of the party, a demand was also put forward to transfer the Deputy Commissioner and the Superintendent of Police for a fair and just investigation.
On being queried about this allegation of the BJP, Rymbui said that he cannot say much about the allegation but he said that the Government takes due and necessary responsibility whenever a crime is committed, and if there is any case or complaint filed, the police must do their duty which does not mean that it is a political vendetta.
He said that the SP of West Garo Hills District also notifies the public from time to time on the progress of the process, and added that the investigation process of the police should be allowed to be completed and wait for what will be revealed.
